The Friday edition of the Idaho Statesman profiles Full Circle Exchange, a Treasure Valley nonprofit that pays women living wages to make goods in developing nations around the world.

In 2014, Full Circle started a Meridian operation in which refugee women in the area made Mother's Day cards that will be sold in Walmarts around the country.

Click here to watch a short video about Full Circle's new plan, and read the Friday front-page story to learn how the nonprofit works and how the Mother's Day card project has helped Congolese refugee Denise Baukure start a new life here.
